A Seahouse September - Part The Third!
As the summer fades, Seahousers rise from their slumber, ready to take on the world with the raw power of independent music. Truly, this is an uprising of the melodic kind. Allow our third installment of the ninth month to tell the tale of what is done, and what is still to come....
We are very happy to announce our latest signing, Distorted Model. A big warm welcome to the Seahouse Family. Look at their happy faces! But more importantly, listen to their excellent tunes.
Distorted Model are based in Essex in the South East of England, and have an EP and two singles to their name so far.
Check out their new artist page on our website, which has their social links. We look forward to seeing what they do next.
Tonight at The Meeting Place in Barrow the Acoustic Sessions features an all female line-up.
Our very own Olivia Dacre is playing, alongside our singer-songwriter friends Jorgie Wilson and Kathryn Bell.
Entry is free and it starts at 8pm. If you can, please get along to support the event at this excellent venue.
Fudstock is back again! After some atrocious weather washed the event out in summer, the organisers have acted swiftly to rearrange this event which happens tomorrow at Furness Cavaliers, Roose, in Barrow.
Amongst the very fine acts on display are three of our own from Seahouse Records:
Jordan Gaffney (1.15pm), The AeroBees (2.45pm) and Insula (5pm).
We wish everyone a safe and happy day, and fingers crossed for the weather!
We kick off our contribution to Barrow Music Week with this all-day event at BUMS on Sunday 1st October. It's going to be a very cool place to be, as ever, with the following Seahouse artists appearing from 2pm:
Jonny Swift , Jordan Gaffney, Olivia Dacre, Emker Cel, Mark Docherty, Insula, Jamie Bosanko and Prater Monks.
Entry is just £5 and you will be served a mix of acoustic, electric, solo and band performances.
Elsewhere in the week, The AeroBees play Tailors Bar, Barrow at 5.30pm on Friday 6th October, and then The Mark Docherty Band and Emker Cel will also be playing the day after at the Forum Theatre's Dalton Rd event, 12-5pm on Saturday 7th October. Barrow Music Week has loads going on, please check out the full timetable of events here
Linnéa has announced a new EP. We have heard it and we are very excited by it. Five tracks of her trademark dark pop-rock with alluring vocals, co-produced with Mark Docherty. The tracklist is as follows:
The Fixation EP is out on 17th October, and you can pre-save it here
Elsewhere, we have new music coming in October, with singles from The AeroBees and Prater Monks, and the new Emker Cel album "You Are Everything You Are".
Also, please have a listen to our latest Podcast. Seahouse directors Deb Henry and Donna Dacre got together to produce an episode which discusses female issues in the music industry, from local label artists to representation in the wider world. Music in the episode is supplied by Pearl & The Piano, Linnéa, and Olivia Dacre, and a very fine listen it is. Mark Docherty also releases a new podcast on 2nd October, to coincide with his appearances at Barrow Music Week.
Don't forget to check out our latest videos! We are getting great responses to the new promos from Jonny Swift, Jamie Bosanko and Grant Curnow - each of their videos are wonderful in very different ways!
Finally, thank you to everyone who came to our Headspace event last week. This was a real success, and it was great to hear our performers (below) explaining their own experiences of how mental health connects to their music, as well as getting an insight into their songwriting process. The music was brilliant, and it was so valuable to make connections with our community in this way. Thanks to Naomi Preston for her professional input, and to everyone from the audience who contributed to discussions, either in the main session or personally in the breaks. A big thank you to BarrowFull and Women's Community Matters for supporting this event.

Thank you for reading, and for your continued support. Please come to our events, keep listening and sharing our posts, we couldn't do it without you all.
Peace and love from all at Seahouse Records. xxx
